WHAT IS UNDERWRAP?

Underwrap or Pre-Wrap is a lightweight foam wrap designed to protect the skin from tape adhesives during taping techniques using sports tapes.

Most commonly seen when using ankle tape, the ankle is enveloped with Mueller M Wrap which is so thin it conforms well with the contours of the ankle joint, sticking lightly to itself to protect the ankle from the adhesives on zinc oxide tape.

Some physios and sports therapists prefer applying sports tapes directly to the skin to the skin, but Underwrap is still widely used, and is of particular importance in athletes with skin sensitivities, or wounds.

In the McConnell Taping Technique to treat the pain of patella tracking Hypafix tends to be used as an underwrap to protect the knee.
